Walker Brothers - Portrait
(Philips BL.7732 UK-66 EX 275:-)

Probably the greatest Walker Brothers record ever – the one that really points the way towards the later genius of Scott Walker's solo records! The set moves past the pop sounds of earlier records – into the darkness and moody vocal style that Scott would craft to masterful proportions on his own sides.

Original UK MONO pressing, complete with insert.
Walker, Scott - Sings Jacques Brel
(Philips 6359.090 UK-81 EX 300:-)

Jacques Brel is to Scott Walker roughly as Woody Guthrie is to Bob Dylan. At a formative point in Walker's career, his sensibility was crucially informed by Brel. So much so that he recorded nine Brel compositions on his first three albums.

This collection shines a spotlight on that part of Walker's musical makeup by putting all of those tracks together in one place. Walker's deep, rich voice bears more than enough high-dramatic quality to pull of the extreme emotional range of Brel's songs.

Original UK pressing. Both Sleeve and Vinyl are graded EX.
Walker, Scott - Stretch
(Epic ECPM-40 Jap-73 EX 300:-)

Scott Walker's first album for CBS, purports to be a detour into country music, but it is a side road that Walker decided not to pursue thoroughly. Only a handful of songs, like Tom T Hall's "That's How I Got to Memphis" and Mike Newbury's "Sunshine," are genuine country songs, and the remainder of the album consists of mainstream pop and folk-rock songs that are quite similar to his latter-day Phillips albums. The difference is that Walker sounds more committed on this record, singing with a greater passion than on any record since Til the Band Comes In.

Scarce Japanese Epic label 11-track vinyl LP, housed in a pasted gatefold picture sleeve with integral Japanese/English lyric insert and obi-strip.
Velvet Underground - Everything You've ever Heard
(VU Records VU-333 UK-82 EX 400:-)

Few rock groups can claim to have broken so much new territory, and maintain such consistent brilliance on record, as the Velvet Underground during their brief lifespan. During their time, the group experienced little commercial success; though they were hugely appreciated by a cult audience and some critics, the larger public treated them with indifference or, occasionally, scorn. The Velvets' music was too important to languish in obscurity, though; their cult only grew larger and larger in the years following their demise, and continued to mushroom through the years.

30-track triple vinyl LP box set, housed in a textured picture box featuring a yellow banana image on the front plus tracklisting insert.
Velvet Underground - Live 1969
(Mercury SRM-2-7504 US-74 VG+ 275:-)

Sadly, outside of a handful of audience tapes of extremely variable fidelity, no one thought to make a live recording of the Velvet Underground during their 1967-1968 peak period with John Cale prodding Lou Reed into remarkable flights of noise-rock fancy. However, in 1969, a VU fan who was a recording engineer brought a reel-to-reel tape machine to two shows the band played during an engagement at a club in Dallas called The End of Cole Avenue; a few months later, the band played The Matrix in San Francisco, where a tape machine had been installed into the hall's sound system, and the band was allowed to record their set.

Five years later, long after the Velvet Underground had collapsed and Lou Reed's solo career was on the rise, Mercury Records compiled highlights of the Dallas and San Francisco tapes into a two-record set, and it is without question the best document of this band's considerable strengths as a live act.

Original US pressing; both sleeve and vinyl are graded VG+.
Venom - The Waste Lands
(Under One Flag FLAG-72 UK-92 EX 375:-)

A seminal influence on the evolution of thrash and black metal, Venom formed during the late '70s in Newcastle, England. Influenced by the heavy intensity of Motörhead and the visual flash of Kiss, they developed a dark, blistering sound that paved the way for the subsequent rise of thrash music; similarly, their macabre, proudly satanic image proved a major inspiration for the legions of black metal bands to appear in their wake.

"The Waste Lands" is their eighth studio album and the last with bassist/singer Tony "Demolition Man" Dolan and also the last before the reunion of the classic Venom line-up from their first four albums.
Verve - Forth
(On Your Own VER-01-LP EU-08 SS 300:-)
Limited edition set, comprised of 12-track 2-LP pressed on 140gram Vinyl, including the single 'Love Is Noise' alongside exclusive vinyl bonus recordings 'Ma Ma Soul' and 'Muhammad Ali', plus CD version of the entire album, plus bonus NTSC DVD featuring 'Space & Time: The Verve Documentary' and live performances from Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, California in April 2008.

The LP's are packaged in a gatefold sleeve, while CD and DVD are presented in card wallet sleeves - the set is then housed in a deluxe sealed 12½" x 12½" box [skillfully rendered to give the appearance of an old, worn tape box - this is NOT damaged, it's been made to look like this!!] with 12" x 12" 16-page memorabilia booklet! This copy is Still Sealed!
Who - Tommy
(Simply Vinyl SVLP-201 UK-96 EX 350:-)

An amazing moment from The Who – and from the UK rock scene in general – as Tommy is one of the most fully-conceived concept albums ever recorded – a masterful effort that's still pretty hard to match all these many years later! Pete Townshend really knocked it out of the park with this one – and pushed the group way way past the simpler songs the were recording just a year before – into this deeply introspective territory, spun out both in the album's words and music.

UK limited edition Simply Vinyl issue 2-LP set pressed on 180gram VIRGIN VINYL, in gatefold sleeve housed in a stickered PVC dust jacket.
Villagers - Live at the Workman's Club, Dublin
(Domino WIGLP273 UK-11 EX 275:-)

Villagers are an Irish indie folk band from Dublin, formed in 2008, after singer Conor O'Brien's break-up of his previous band The Immediate.

Villagers’ night at the Workman’s Club was as much celebration as a gig. Throughout the hour long performance, Conor’s voice ranges from the intimate tones of a friend confiding in you on tracks like ‘27 Strangers’ and ‘The Pact’ to the soaring, almost rapture-like intensity on ‘Pieces’ and ‘Home’.

Exclusive Record Store Day 2011 release.
Vincent, Gene - I'm Back and I'm Proud
(Dandelion S-63754 UK-69 EX 400:-)

Gene Vincent was languishing on the oldies circuit in 1969, attracting slightly more interest in Europe than his US homeland, when he made this album for John Peel’s Dandelion label. Steppenwolf’s Mars Bonfire, The Byrds’ Skip Battin and The Lovin’s Spoonful’s John Sebastian feature in the band, as does a young Linda Ronstadt on backing vocals.

1969 UK 12-track LP, gatefold sleeve with internal pocket. The sleeve shows some very minor wear; the vinyl is in Excellent condition!
